I just found out today about micheal. I was in basic training with him and his locker was across from mine. What a great guy is all I can think and got me through some rough times with his up beat personality and his soul big as his heart. Good Christian man he was. Rest in peace battle buddy you will NEVER be forgotten.

I knew Mike from Fort Campbell and he was an outstanding man. Loved God and could always be found at the church. I left for Germany and read his name in the list of those who died in Iraq, I mourn for him but I know that in heaven, Great is his Reward!

Well it's been a long time my friend, my brother, but you are not forgotten. You picture still hangs on the fridge, and I think of you often. I think of all the great times we had growing up and how blessed I am to have had you in my life, and just wanted to say thank you! Miss you Mickey!

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.


The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”


I did not know Michael, but I am remembering
his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

To the family of Brave Sgt. Michael D. Acklin, 2'nd.,

When the call rings out the exceptional answer. I didn't know your son but I feel he was such a person. In a sense we all are his family because he died protecting us all. Please take heart in the fact that the young man you raised is admired by every one of us. Governments start wars and the exceptional stand up to do their duty. Brave Sgt. Acklin, may you rest in peace knowing you will be reunited with your beautiful family. They await the day when you will lead them into God's kingdom. Though we are sad at your passing, we celebrate one who was truly exceptional.
